Steve,

I used to run a tri-level space hulk event at conventions, and here's how I did it.  Simply divide your table into 3 or 4 battle areas with points of entry corresponding to where they would be on the other areas.  Not only that, but you could have one player play each area's defending force if you wanted to increase the number of players for the event.  Although a huge 3d board is great for the WOW factor and would bring the gawkers and generate interest in UWZ as a byproduct, the other way is FAR more playable IMHO.

In ages past I saw a multi-level Space Hulk game where each set of tiles was placed on a level of cheap vinyl shelves.  It looked multi-level and yet you could maipulate the pieces with relative ease.  The downside is that I rarely see those kinds of shelves sold anymore but it's worth at try.

I plan on using angle iron uprights from a metal shelf to hold plywood tiers and build each tier as a seperate floor.

Steve roughly sketched what he envisioned for this board yesterday at Maplewood Hobby, and it looks like it'll be pretty spectacular when it comes together. :)

Thank you, Thank you
Fear that my vision might be too Grand for the world  ;)

it would be way kool if john cuts the wood and makes the spinning base.
I could do the stair cases, the puting together and detail work form there.

I'm sure he'll do it, he loves workin' on stuff like that.  Next time I'm there, I want to work on that bookcase thing, or maybe find another one, and get like 5-8 platforms. :)
